The Noel Coward Theatre London
First named the New Theatre, and shortly after The Albery, The Noel Coward Theatre was constructed by Sir Charles and Mary Wyndham and had its opening night on 12th March 1903.
In 1915 Dion Boucicault presented a Christmas revival of J M Barrie’s Peter Pan, which was then repeated every year until 1919. It also staged a number of successful productions by other distinguished writers such as Somerset Maugham, A A Milne, Noel Coward, Bernard Shaw, Dylan Thomas, T S Eliot and Tennessee Williams.
The sixties were ruled by Lionel Bart’s Oliver! which ran for an incredible 2618 performances.
A host of famous names have appeared on stage at the theatre including Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud, Sybil Thorndike, and Peggy Ashcroft. In 1973 the New Theatre was renamed the Albery in tribute to Sir Bronson Albery who had presided over the theatre, for many years. The Noel Coward Theatre has seen many diverse productions such as Somerset Maugham’s The Constant Wife, Children of a Lesser God by Mark Medoff, Tom Stoppard’s Travesties and of course Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers.

“The script is over four hundred pages!” complains the agent (Robert Boulter) to writer and playwright Toby Darling (Andrew Burnap), before pointing out that nobody would sit through a play that long. Cue knowing smiles and giggles in the audience. Does The Inheritance need to be six and a half hours (a reduction from over seven hours in its previous run at the Young Vic) long? Strictly speaking, no, and in the course of the matinee and evening (or two evenings, however, you wish to see both … [Read more...]

This is a black comedy about a black cat. Its part Reservoir Dogs and part Father Ted and as such The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a surreal, comic satire and send-up of Irish terrorism. Written by Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing) and starring Aidan Turner (Poldark) this is a very important funny play. Why? Mental health. We must laugh. We cannot go in living in a state of psychological fear. The so-called war on terror post 9/11 has created an overreaction and moral panic that … [Read more...]
